Insight Imaging (Formerly Center for Advanced Imaging)

The original building for Insight Imaging was constructed in the early 1970’s as a trendy nightclub/restaurant. In order to transform it into an ultra-modern imaging center, the owner contacted Hughes Associates A&E. To provide for its new medical functions, the building was gutted leaving only the exterior walls and roof structure. Calming colors and finishes soothe patients waiting to undergo complicated medical procedures. The former round dance floor has been replaced by a modern open-sided MRI and exam rooms. The drab exterior stucco finish and heavy wooden entrance canopy and deck were replaced with gleaming granite wall tiles and an airy curved metal canopy.
